New York (PRWEB) March 24, 2010

YES, a leading television provider with over 570,000 subscribers, has launched MyYes – a personalized television guide widget, now made available on desktops, Facebook and personalized homepages such as iGoogle.

Powered by WorkLight, the multi-channel widget is integrated with Israel-based YES Satellite Services’ television programming systems and databases. Customers are able to predefine media content preferences by program, genre and keywords, track specific programs and recommend preferred television programs and movies to friends from a selection of over 130 video and HD channels.

“Our customers value a personalized viewing experience, and we wanted to carry that same experience to the television guide widget,” said Dror Bahat, VP Marketing at YES Satellite Services. “Since our pre-launch release, both widget downloads and customer usage have far exceeded our expectations, in large part due to the unique multi-channel widget strategy made possible by WorkLight.”

Developed in a single effort using the WorkLight Solution (http://www.worklight.com), the MyYes Television Guide Widget is made available to customers on Windows and Mac desktops, Adobe AIR, Facebook, iGoogle and is part of the YES website.

“We are excited to partner with YES Satellite Services to deliver an innovative widget as an attractive new service to its customers,” said Shahar Kaminitz, CEO of WorkLight. “By addressing a wide range of web and desktop platforms with a convenient application, YES is able to engage its customers wherever they prefer to spend time online.”

Telecast Fiber Systems Launches CopperHead 3200











CopperHead 3200 – Fiber Optic Camera Transceiver


Worcester, MA (PRWEB) April 2, 2010

Telecast Fiber Systems today announced the availability of the CopperHead™ 3200, the first in the company’s new Series 3000 family of camera-mounted fiber optic transceivers. The CopperHead 3200 offers an affordable yet powerful mid-range multicasting solution for a range of HD broadcasting applications including TV news and sports production, electronic cinematography, and multi-camera studio, truck, and flypack field production.

“Since we introduced our CopperHead line in 2001, it has become the industry leader in camera-mounted video transport solutions – enabling broadcasters to extend the power of their camcorders and take maximum advantage of the high quality and reliability of fiber transmissions,” said Jim Hurwitz, director of product management at Telecast Fiber Systems. “The CopperHead 3200 includes significant improvements and a range of products matched to specific broadcasting and film production requirements all at cost-effective price point never available before.”

The CopperHead 3200 provides a robust fiber optic link between any professional camera or camcorder and the broadcaster’s truck, control room, or video village position. Over a single fiber connection, the system simultaneously transports bidirectional digital (SDI or HD/SDI) and analog (NTSC or PAL) video, as well as all two-way camera control, audio, video, data, sync, tally/call, prompter, and intercom signals between the camera and the base station. In addition, the CopperHead 3200 is the first to feature a 10/100 Ethernet path to provide camera control for next-generation cameras or a remote link to laptops and servers. Because the system transmits all signals digitally and optically, broadcasters and producers are assured of the highest quality video and audio — free from interference, grounding problems, or drifting due to temperature variations.

The CopperHead 3200 camera unit mounts directly to any professional camera’s battery interface system such as Anton-Bauer, “V”-Mount, or PAG, connecting directly to the battery or other power supply solution such as the CopperHead PowerPlus or Power Wafer (for use with SMTPE hybrid fiber). The CopperHead 3200 base station is a lightweight 1RU frame located in the broadcaster’s truck, control room, or video village that provides true plug-and-play operation without requiring any front panel adjustments.

Following the launch of the CopperHead 3200, Telecast Fiber Systems will be rolling out the other members of the CopperHead 3000 family – including a model designed specifically for mobile ENG applications; one designed for budget-conscious organizations such as houses of worship, educational institutions, and governments; and higher-end versions for 3-D cinema production and cinema-quality cameras with dual-link requirements.

The CopperHead 3200 has already been adopted by numerous broadcasting and production professionals. An example is All Mobile Video (AMV), one of North America’s foremost providers of video and audio production solutions and equipment, which has made the system a key component in its new HD Tapeless Carrypack system. AMV will be demonstrating the system in Telecast’s booth at the 2010 NAB Show, #C8925.

Telecast Fiber Systems, Inc. is a division of Belden (NYSE:BDC), a leader in comprehensive signal transmission solutions for fiber, cable, wireless signal, and industrial networking applications.

NOISEVOX Launches The Future of Music Media











Noisevox.org


New York, NY (PRWEB) June 10, 2010

This month, Noisevox launched its groundbreaking music media site, Noisevox.org, combining citizen journalism and exclusive HD video programming in a social networking atmosphere.

As a music portal for bands, journalists and photographers, Noisevox is a unique newcomer to the market in the way it collects, organizes and publishes its content.

“Noisevox.org aims to become a global destination for music news, reviews and discovery. It pits schooled, professional music critics against hip, savvy citizen journalists; the music is at the center,” says founder David Navarrete.

By employing a traditional media masthead-model and awarding journalists “points” for contributing content, writers advance in ranking and title. Press credentials, tickets to shows, artist interviews and free music are just some of the perks that come with being at the top of a magazine’s masthead. Photographers are also encouraged to participate in a similar creation and reward process. Artists have the ability to upload music and promote themselves within the community.

Close to the site’s heart is the return of music video programming to screens. Noisevox’s video channel, NVTV, run by music television veteran John Norris, features exclusive interviews with Lady Gaga, Broken Social Scene, Vampire Weekend and Arctic Monkeys. Norris, who oversees NVTV, said, “The abandonment of music news coverage and music programming by video outlets large and small is at this point the stuff of pop legend. Nothing could make me happier than playing a significant role in its return.” Another NVTV series, Face Time, recently premiered and more programming is planned for 2010.

NV Radio is Noisevox’s internet radio operation. While programmed commercial- and host-free at the moment by the site’s staff, Noisevox encourages users to submit playlists of their own, which the radio station will feature on a weekly and eventually a nightly basis.

Noisevox is an online media company, music magazine and video network containing original video programming. Noisevox is a venture-funded company located in downtown New York.

Movavi Video Converter 10


Moscow, Russia (PRWEB) June 23, 2010 —

Movavi, a leading developer of multimedia-processing software, today unveiled new versions of its flagship products Movavi Video Converter 10 and Movavi Video Suite 9.

Movavi has been working closely with NVIDIA® to bring Movavi users significant performance enhancements with up to 800% improvements* in speed of video encoding, depending on input and output formats and hardware used. The updated software also features support for the hyper-threading technology of Intel® Core™ i3, i5 and i7 processors, additional multimedia processing functionality and support for the latest mobile devices.

Movavi Video Converter 10 and Movavi Video Suite 9 now support over 180 popular mobile devices, including Apple® iPad™, Google Nexus One™, HTC Droid Eris, Microsoft Zune™ HD, LG Arena, Samsung Galaxy, Motorola Droid and more, as well as ready-made presets to convert video, audio and unencrypted DVDs to and from over 170 media formats. New processing functionality includes video capture from TV-tuners, VHS cassettes and AVCHD video capture, CD/DVD/Blu-ray disc™ burning, video editing tools and more.

“As users acquire more and more multimedia-enabled mobile devices, they need media processing tools that support all types of formats and devices but are still easy to use,” said Natalia Khudyakova, CEO of Movavi. “Movavi software delivers professional-quality tools that are easily usable by home users as well as businesses at a cost that’s accessible to all. By incorporating breakthrough technology, we’ve been able to speed up performance and response time, so users can make the most of their NVIDIA CUDA -enabled PCs and laptops”.

“GPUs excel at manipulating visual data for digital media computing,” said Michael Steele, General Manager of Visual Consumer Solutions at NVIDIA. “It is exciting to see CUDA-based visual computing applications continue to appear from all corners of the globe, especially when they enable 9x performance increases over a CPU, which is what Movavi has achieved by moving the processing to NVIDIA GPUs.”

Key benefits of Movavi Video Converter 10 include:


    Fast video conversion: Support for Multi-GPU NVIDIA® CUDA™ technology boosts the conversion speed up to 800% on PCs with two or more CUDA-enabled GPUs. When users select a CUDA-powered preset, the software will is able to convert two or more videos at one time.
    Optimization for multi-core processors: Movavi leverages the hyper-threading technology of Intel® Core™ i3, i5 and i7 processors, ensuring smooth and efficient decoding, previewing and simultaneous conversion of multiple media files, as well as parallel conversion of single H264 and MPEG-4 files. Conversion speed gain equates approximately to the number of processor cores. Movavi Video Converter 10 also supports AMD multi-core processors.
    New device presets: Movavi Video Converter 10 now supports more than 180 portable devices including Apple iPad, Google Nexus One, HTC Droid Eris, Microsoft Zune HD, LG Arena, Samsung Galaxy, Motorola Droid, and more.
    New format presets: Movavi Video Converter adds support for more input and output formats, including video with AC3 and FLAC sound and for posting to Vimeo and Yahoo! Video.
    Automatic selection of bitrate values: This function automatically ensures optimum balance between size and quality when converting videos to MPEG-4, MPEG 1-2, H.264, WMV, or FLV (with H.264 codec).
    Pause/resume conversion control: With the latest version users can pause conversion if they need additional CPU cycles for another task and then resume conversion at the point they left off.
    Intuitive graphic logos for presets: Users can instantly choose the right preset for a particular mobile device; the presets that leverage CUDA technology also include the CUDA logo.
    Integration with Windows Explorer: Videos can now be converted right from Windows Explorer by right-clicking on a media file and choosing “Movavi — Convert to” from the drop-down menu. The application keeps track of ten frequently used presets.
    Request feature option: Movavi software delivers the improvements users ask for, so the software now included a “Request Feature” option in the Help menu.
Movavi Video Converter 10 continues to offer improved functionality in the following core areas:

    Tweak video with editing tools, improve video quality
    Specify quality level, fine-tune output format settings
    Choose from extended post-conversion options — Hibernate or Shutdown
    Play back any video — including HD and DVD — and audio with the integrated standalone Media Player

Key benefits of Movavi Video Suite 9

In addition to the above-mentioned improvements in Movavi Video Converter 10, Video Suite 9 also offers:

    Enhanced video capture capabilities: Movavi Video Suite 9 now captures AVCHD video from cameras, TV-tuners and VHS cassettes. When a video recorder or a VHS capture device is connected to the user’s PC, it is automatically detected and added it to the list of video capture sources.
    Burning Blu-ray Discs: Movavi Video Suite 9 comes with video Blu-ray disc burning capabilities and offers nine artistic menu themes to choose from.
    Background conversion mode: Now users can undertake two tasks at one time – play back movies and convert video in the background. Message is displayed when the conversion is complete.
    Improved media playback: Fast, smooth HD video playback is now possible thanks to the Intel and NVIDIA CUDA technology support, along with usability improvements and advanced playback settings.
    New video editing effects: The new “chroma key” effect enables users to substitute the background with any picture; just shoot the video in front of a blue or green backdrop, as TV studios do. Horizontal and vertical mirrors can be used to create a mirror image of a video clip, or flip a clip upside down or reverse each frame in a clip from left to right; t clip will still play forward.
    Refined video editing: Movavi Video Suite 9 offers more precise positioning of the timeline marker, one-click show/hide tracks option, and quick splitting tools to split all the clips on the timeline in two parts. The newly-created tracks appear at the top of the timeline track bar and can be accessed quickly and easily. Users can also change the size of the timeline clip thumbnails to prevent eyestrain.
    HD video fast track: When adding HD video, Movavi Video Suite 9 generates a special smaller video file so that editing is faster and smoother because users are not working with the oversized original video file.
Availability

Movavi Video Converter 10 is available in English, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Japanese, Spanish, and Russian.

Free 30-day trials of the products may be downloaded from: http://www.movavi.com/suite/download.html and http://www.movavi.com/videoconverter/download.html

Wirefly.com Launches Pre-Sale of Samsung Epic™ 4G from Sprint












Reston, VA (Vocus) August 24, 2010

Wirefly (http://www.wirefly.com ), the Internet’s leading retailer of cell phones and cell phone plans, today announced that it is hosting a pre-sale for the highly anticipated Samsung Epic™ 4G, a premium Android-powered smartphone from the award-winning Samsung Galaxy S™ smartphone lineup. Available exclusively from Sprint, Wirefly customers can now pre-order the Samsung Epic 4G on Wirefly.com before it officially hits stores’ shelves later this month – and at a special Wirefly price, backed by a 30 day pre-order price guarantee.

Samsung Epic 4G has the distinction of being the second 4G-capable handset from Sprint and the only 4G Samsung Galaxy S smartphone. In addition to operating on the Sprint 4G network and Sprint 3G network (depending on user location), the Samsung Epic 4G is powered by the Android 2.1 operating system, comes equipped with an ultra-fast 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird Application processor for faster upload and download times and has built-in mobile hotspot capability that allows up to five Wi-Fi equipped devices to simultaneously connect to either Sprint 3G Network or Sprint 4G Network. The mobile hotspot is an optional charge of $ 29.99 per month.

The sleek smartphone has a stunning 4″ Super AMOLED™ touchscreen display that gives users a vivid, high-definition-like viewing experience ideal for watching videos, TV, playing games, surfing the web, texting and emailing. The already robust entertainment experience is only going to get better with the impending launch of Samsung Media Hub where Epic 4G users will be able to rent or purchase movies and TV shows directly from their phones.

Samsung Epic 4G is a social networking and messaging powerhouse. It is the only Galaxy S smartphone to offer a slide-out, full QWERTY keyboard in addition to the virtual keyboard and Swype technology, which allows users to input text faster and more intuitively with one continuous finger motion across the virtual keyboard. It also features an advanced 5-megapixel camera/camcorder with 4x digital zoom, autofocus, and power LED flash for HD video recording1 as well as a front-facing VGA camera for video chat. With Samsung’s ALLShare service, users can then wirelessly share their photos and videos with their friends and family on their Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) certified devices, including HDTVs.

Customers looking to purchase this hot new device and all of the useful accessories that go along with it do not have to wait until its official launch date. Samsung Epic 4G is now available at a special pre-order price on http://www.wirefly.com for new and upgrade-eligible Sprint customers with a two-year agreement.    Customers can take comfort knowing that the Epic 4G is protected by Wirefly’s 30 Day Pre-Order Price Guarantee. If the price of the device on Wirefly.com drops below the pre-order price within 30 days of the August 31 launch date, Wirefly will automatically refund the difference to customer’s credit card. And, as always, every Wirefly order comes with fast, free FedEx shipping.

Telecast Fiber Systems Launches CopperHead™ 3050 Camera-Mounted Fiber Optic Transceiver











CopperHead 3050 Camera Mounted Fiber Optic Camera Transceiver


Worcester, MA (Vocus) August 26, 2010

Telecast Fiber Systems today announced the launch of the CopperHead™ 3050, the newest member of the company’s award-winning CopperHead Series 3000 family of camera-mounted fiber optic transceivers. The CopperHead 3050 is specifically designed to meet the unique requirements of electronic news gathering (ENG) and satellite news gathering (SNG), enabling TV journalists to cover breaking news with the highest quality HD video and pristine audio over thousands of feet of lightweight and inexpensive tactical fiber cable.

The compact CopperHead 3050 Camera unit sandwiches instantly between the camera and professional battery system, such as Anton-Bauer® or V-Mount, while the 1RU base station mounts in the truck. The system delivers uncompressed HD video and broadcast-quality audio from the camera, returning off-air video, intercom, and a powered IFB feed for the reporter that works with a standard IFB belt pack. In addition, a 10/100 Ethernet connection gives reporters a reliable high-speed connection to their truck for routing to their newsroom computer system or the Internet.

Live shots won’t be interrupted by cable failures, as the system uses Telecast’s lightweight TAC-series fiber optic cable, which is military spec and battlefield rated.

“Never before has it been so easy — or so cost-effective — for stations to cover the news in HD without the distance limitations, weight, or worry of copper cable. With this system, robust and reliable fiber optic connectivity is now practical and affordable for news gathering at stations of all sizes and budgets,” said Jim Hurwitz, director of product management for Telecast Fiber Systems. “The CopperHead 3050 demonstrates just how versatile our CopperHead Series 3000 is becoming, and why the CopperHead brand remains the industry leader in camera-mounted video transport solutions.”

Other systems in the CopperHead Series 3000 family provide camcorder-mounted solutions for a wide range of HD applications, including HD studios, live OB sports coverage, 3D sports, 2D and 3D digital cinema, and big-screen image magnification. For these various applications, Telecast systems carry all of the signals needed, including camera control, audio, video, data, sync, tally/call, prompter, and intercom signals between the camera and the base station.

The systems are available directly from Telecast Fiber Systems or via a network of authorized CopperHead dealers. For more information about Fiber Optic Applications in ENG and SNG download our white paper. For a demonstration of the CopperHead 3050 visit Telecast Fiber Systems at IBC2010, stand 10.B39.
